    I hit my server through active stink on the XV6600, over the air. It's the native app on the phone, you shouldn't need third party if the server on the other end is an OWA.

    Our admin gave me a certificate and I set up the account in about 3 mintues. works like a charm. Let me know if you want details.

    Talk to your Exchange administrator, they should be able to hook you up.

    You can either use OMA (Outlook Mobile Access), or Server ActiveSync. I use the latter, as it's far more robust. You can even set it up so that the Exchange server will SMS your phone when a new e-mail is received. The phone will catch the SMS and not display it to you, but it will trigger an over-the-air ActiveSync. Works wonderously.

    Yes it's called wireless sync. It's part of your phone. Use "search".

    One thing you have to remember is that many companies are still running exchange 5.5 which pocket ie just doesn't play well with and oma/eas doesn't exist. Exchange 2000 OWA works ok with pocket ie as well as Exchange 2003. Exchange 2000 supports direct device to exchange syncing via MIS server and Exchange 2003 supports this natively. Check with your IT dept and see what they are using, also see if their security policies support pocket pc's.

    In addition to relatively slow deployment of Exchange Server 2003 w/ OMA, many corporations aren't turning OMA on even after deploying the upgrade.

    Also, many corporations have deemed VZW's wireless sync to violate their security protocols and either block it, or make use of such services a violation by the employee of the corp.'s electronic communications policies.
